Re: RF key fob transmitter

I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. It’s definitely worth a try.

Re: Lattice Wheel Refurbishment

Yes it’s a bit of a conundrum. I have tried to contact JDHT, but they don’t seem to minding their phones due to staff working at home. I have emailed too - but have had no reply as yet. It’ll be a shame if I can’t get the original colour again. All the wheels on the car will need refurbishing event...

Re: XJ40 1994 4.0S

I think bodywork is very often the most time consuming job on cars. It’s a good effort. Hopefully it will all come good in the end.

Re: Project

That must've been a satisfying milestone, Simon! One of the reasons we bought our current place was storage space and depending on the reader's perspective it was either sad or cool that the cars moved in before our furniture did... ;) One of the reasons? :lol: Great news Simon. It’s a big day in l...

Re: Lattice Wheel Refurbishment

I actually asked JCP/ JDHT this question once. A while back. Not just about 16” Lattice. But paint codes for the exact shades used on various wheels of this era. As clearly there are 100’s of slightly different shades for each colour, especially silver. Rather frustratingly I was informed that there...

Re: Tow bar for 1993 XJ40

I think I have an aftermarket tow bar with electrics available, come to think of it.
Message me for details if you are interested.

Re: Tow bar for 1993 XJ40

Two key bits of information here. Genuine Jaguar Tow kit. This fits under the bumper and replaces the original bumper mounts. No cutting/ drilling required. But they are rare, as you might expect. There’s a genuine Tow electrics kit too. But it’s MY specific as usual for 40 electrics. I have one ava...

Re: Leaking coolant reservoir cap

Have you checked the twin electric cooling fans both work? It’s not uncommon for them to seize up/ fail.

Re: Leaking coolant reservoir cap

Hi Larry, I am pretty sure I spotted at least one of the thermostats when I was looking for a leak last year, so I assume they both have not been removed by a previous owner. But could a defect thermostat cause the same behaviour? Oliver Genuine new Thermostats £8.54 each. (Two needed of course). U...

Re: Also bitten by the XJ-S bug...

The local heat wave has kept me away from my storage/workshop, so only a parcel update for now. 50213969566_2d8934dd3e_w.jpg AJ6 Engineering has been swamped with orders since the beginning of the pandemic, so I had to be patient, not my strongest point... ;) This ECU has been reprogrammed to 'unde...
